DLNR Seeks Input on the Alternatives for the Park Master Plan
UPDATE 2/1/16 – Interested people are invited to review and discuss the preliminary alternatives for the management and development of Kealakekua Bay State Historical Park on Hawaii Island following a meeting on Saturday, January 30, 2016 at Konawaena Elementary School. The findings of studies conducted for the planning were shared, along with the alternatives that address public use, management of important resources, and proposed facilities. Kealakekua is one of the most culturally and historically significant places in Hawaii and the goal of this park planning is to balance the preservation of the cultural values and historical sites with the recreational use of the park, especially the very popular Kealakekua Bay.
The Department of Land and Natural Resources (DLNR), Division of State Parks in partnership with Belt Collins Hawaii (BCH) is hosting this meeting as part of the planning process for the Master Plan Update and an Environmental Impact Statement. If you were unable to attend this meeting, you may send email comments to: Kealakekua@bchdesign.com.
Comments will be accepted until February 28, 2016.
“As we update our master planning for Kealakekua Bay State Historical Park, we’ve made a concerted effort to integrate planning for the bay and ocean recreation with the land-based park and the concerns of the local community” said Curt Cottrell, DLNR State Parks Administrator. “We know how popular this bay is with both residents and visitors and are seeking input on management and development alternatives that will balance recreational use with the historical and cultural values of this very special place,” Cottrell said.
